At The Retreat House we want to encourage others to consider
What is God wanting me to know?" and "What is He wanting me to do?".
These questions inspire all we offer. 

But now, O Lord, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand.

Isaiah 64:8



One on one coaching is a very efficient way to discover who you are and how God has designed you. Walking alongside someone through this process not only allows you the time and space to really engage this journey, it gives you outside perspective that can be vital in the growth process.

This is personal work that takes time and we will go at your  pace. Meetings can be arranged via Zoom, phone or in person.


Personal Awareness Coaching:

This type of coaching helps you discover how God has wired you and helps you step into your True self, which is who you are in Christ. We will discover strengths, weaknesses and sticky spots that can lead to sin, breaks in relationships or blocks in your relationship with The Lord. 

We will journey through several tools that will help us gain knowledge and information to draw us to the heart of Christ. 

Relationship Coaching:

Whether you are married and feeling like you would like to connect deeper to your spouse or you are dating and want to start off on the right foot. Relationship coaching can be a very helpful practice to  jumpstart healthy communication, boundaries and understanding of one another. Couples can meet separately or together.


Counseling is an opportunity to take a deeper look at past experiences, stresses of everyday life, wounding, and the impasses we can’t seem to overcome. At The Retreat House, we see counseling as an invitation to move from a place of brokenness, struggle, pain, burnout, or apathy to a place of renewal, reconciliation, and restoration.


Whether you’re a pastor dealing with the heaviness of ministry, a missionary struggling through the isolation of the mission field, a mom who feels like all you ever do is give, a dad who works long hours and feels isolated and empty everyday, or a person who just feels like they’ve lost their way, at The Retreat House we want to help you find your way back to yourself, God, and meaningful relationships that are life-giving.


Spiritual Direction

Spiritual direction is two people intentionally sitting with God to discern, engage with and find guidance from the Holy Spirit. Together becoming present to the Presence of God.The Spiritual Direction is a listening companion helping to notice and respond to what God is stirring and leading, not a “guru” or someone that has achieved any high religious or spiritual marks, they are  simply ready and willing to set the table for both to engage withThe Lord while being sensitive to the movements within our souls.
